Summer flip flops!

I have to share my new favorite flip flops and how I made mine stylish!
These are the best flip flops I have ever owned. The bottoms of them are made out of yoga mats. I actually purchased these at Target for 12.99 (why are flip flops so expensive now?) I originally found these in brown while vacationing in Florida last year and paid twice that price at some surf shop. When I found them at Target this year I quickly grabbed a couple pairs. One to keep plain and one to beautify.
They are AMAZING, and I have already worn them for a couple of months and they are really holding up. It feels like I am walking around on clouds!  I know I am making a big deal about this ladies, but comfort for my feet is serious stuff!
I picked up a colorful piece of fabric from the Hob Lob and I started out with a plan. I was going to wrap the flip flop in a piece of torn fabric and then add a flower but that didn't really turn out like I wanted. So I played and played (and made several different flowers) and finally decided on an idea that was totally different than my initial plan. Good thing I have an open mind! :)

Aren't they cute??? I just love them. I made the flower out of that fabric from above and raided my ribbon stash and found this ribbon I totally forgot I had! (Does that mean I have too much?)
Isn't this the cutest ribbon? It comes like this and it's got a bit of stretchiness to it. They have it in several colors. I love that it repeats the lining of my flip flop. Ok, people get ready for the next photo! I'm just keeping it real!

Ignore that I need a pedicure! I had a sick dog I needed to stay home with today. So what do you think, fashion and style? Love it!!! So do you have a favorite pair of flip flops that you can transform to cuteness? Oh and I didn't do a tutorial but if you need to know how to make these flowers go check it out!

These are adorable! I am a sandal wearing Senorita so I am always looking for cute options. I am just starting my journey with crafts of al sorts so I was wondering how you attatched the flower? Was it with hot glue?
